Favourite character introduced in the series

Post by Gingaddict » Tue May 26, 2020 1:34 pm

Who's your favourite character that was introduced not through the GNG series but in this series?

My favourite is Tomon as he's very wise, kind and resourceful - in my opinion he's the old mentor character done right. The other of course is Shion as he's very brave and a good friend.

As for a character I felt was improved upon from the GNG series, it would have to be Akatora, hearing his last thoughts for Ben and his friends really got me there... BUT WHY WASN'T CHUTORA PRESENT AT HIS DEATH????
I did a Ginga dog horoscope and according my calculations, I am most like Gin! Am I lucky?

I took one of those 'Which character are you?' tests, one which happened to be Ginga related and it said I would
be most like Tesshin! I feel quite honoured!

Oooh, I kinda feel like Lonely Ron and Bull, they're both quite the motley duo :surprisegin:

Tomon's a great character too, for the reasons you gave exactly. I especially liked his interactions with Toshi, he just does so well with him sometimes owo

I do favor Tomon. He’s a cool badass character that isn’t afraid to discipline someone who does something wrong. His interactions with Toshi made Toshi grow into a better behaved character.

I also like Ron and Bull. They are good friends and a sweet duo.

Ron and Bull 100%! For a short and simple story made by Yoshi, it's definitely one of his best. I actually.. liked the characters, who both had their own established personalities that didn't really stray away. Crazy.
I should reread the stories for fun again since it's been a while!

I haven’t even read the story yet, but I’ve always liked Tomon’s design. I pick him.

I also really like Ron and Buru. I think their personalities mesh really well and imho, out of all of Yoshi's gentle/pseudo-pacifist characters, Ron is the only one who truly nails it: unlike characters like Weed and Sirius, Ron's pacifism doesn't come across as preachy and even if he ends up being too soft for his own good, Buru's there to make sure the villain faces justice regardless. Plus the mere concept of a protagonist who's a giant wuss instead of a born hero is great.

Really, Lonely Ron is basically Exhibit A on why sometimes more is less when it comes to the number of characters. Ginga has a bit of an issue with the protagonist always clearly being the most important and the other characters, regardless of their individual personalities, just kind of drown each other out because there's just so damn many of them. But when there's only two main characters, their individual personalities and the dynamic between them gets a much better chance to shine.
